Home Sweet Home!

  • 5 of 5

At least that's what it felt like to me when I stayed here at Jenny's place. It's a standalone small house, that when you walk in, you'll see that it is a large efficiency apartment. One big room with bed, kitchen, TV, and two separate small rooms, one is the bathroom/shower, and the other the laundry room where the washer and dryer are.

Jenny has a clean, cozy, comfortable home for rental here, there's a nice TV, fridge, a stove and microwave, and she's got it fully stocked with every kind of kitchen tool that you'd want.

Window unit for the AC, which was needed for a hot mid-September stay, and which kept the room plenty cold and comfortable. No street noise, no noisy neighbors, just quiet.

The bed is comfortable and all of the linens and towels were clean and smelled good. Jenny has good taste in coffee and has some there for you to make.

I couldn't figure out how to turn on the tv and the directTV and I called her for help, and she came right over and she was so nice and friendly. I highly recommend this place.

Note that two people is the max for a comfortable stay, more than that and it'd be really cramped. The two-seater couch doesn't fold out to a bed.

Perfect Spot to Relax!

  • 5 of 5

This is a great little cottage, very private, and I would highly recommend it. The location was very convenient to the rest of town, the university, hiking, and the park for walking my dog. I really appreciated the amenities-- Delicious coffee, Aveda personal care products, nice fluffy towels, a really comfortable bed, washer/dryer, plenty of room to store clothes, easy internet access, and a pleasant front porch to enjoy coffee. Because we like to cook, the one suggestion I would make is one or two more frying pans with lids, a broiler pan for the oven, additional drinking glasses, and some cereal bowls (there was only one, so we had to buy a couple of bowls). Jenny was a great hostess- - not too present, but was available if we needed anything.

Owner's Response: I noticed the bowl shortage after you left and bought some new ones immediately! I am sorry for the inconvenience and glad you enjoyed your stay. Thank you for the suggestion, I will order some new pots and pans today. Jenny

Hummingbird Cottage...take me away!

  • 5 of 5

What a great place to stay at! This was our first HomeAway rental and I think it'll be hard to beat this awesome cottage! Before we rented this, Jenny was quick to answer my questions regarding the rental. Part of choosing to rent Hummingbird Cottage was Jenny's friendliness and prompt responses to my questions.

The cottage looks exactly like it does in the pictures. It's a charming one bedroom cottage with a kitchen and appliances along with a washer and dryer. We utilized the kitchen quite a bit. She provided everything that we might need for cooking, so it was perfect! The coffee from Big Bend Brewing...delicious! This was so much better than staying in a hotel.

The bed was comfortable. Loved that we could pull the TV away from the wall and use the Chromecast to stream Netflix, etc from our phones, iPad, etc. The shower and toiletries were top of the line. If you like having a lot of water pressure in your shower, this is the place to shower.

We walked to town and enjoyed being able to do this. Staying here made me feel like a resident instead of a guest. Thank you again for a WONDERFUL stay!
